Seems uniform - too uniform for chisel work.

Using the elephant sculpture as a guide...any idea as to how many centuries it would take to carve out Petra rooms?

We aren't going to agree Warwick but I am interested to understand how you feel this was done - what tool was used to make those marks etc.. If decorative...same marks can be found in this cave [www.ancient-wisdom.com]

millions of tons of hard stone removed in both cases and with same marks on the walls. Machined\

...and the ceiling work at just after the 8 min mark. good luck with that
